London, Nov 14 (IANS) An Australian woman who turned down a marriage proposal was stunned when her well-to-do suitor handed a bill of over 115,000 pounds ($184,000) for everything he claims to have spent on her.

Single mother Marie Lacombe, 42, from Melbourne, says she and 65-year-old Bruce Dusting were never romantically involved, Daily Mail reported Thursday.

But it seems he felt differently about their relationship, claiming she led him on to extract money from him to fund Zumba classes, shopping trips and even cosmetic surgery.

"This Marie has just destroyed every thought of humanity that I've had for other people," a tearful Dusting said.

Lacombe had met Dusting four years ago when she began teaching him dance. They turned good friends, with Dusting taking her for dinner and visiting her home regularly.

But things between them turned sour when he asked for her hand in marriage - and she turned down the proposal. Now he has handed her an itemised bill outlining every single penny he ever gave her or spent on her behalf.
